I think it started with my former boss, Richard M. Nixon, who liked to fly to China, walk down the stairs, and stick out his hand to Zhou Enlai without any adjustment to the time at all. Ever since, all the presidents do it, as if they were robots and machines and not humans..
That is a precedent that even Congressional Republicans couldn stomach. It is scary to think a former CIA director would have his clearance revoked; it is utterly unconscionable for a former POTUS to have his clearance revoked. I am still not entirely convinced that, despite showing numerous times they have no spine, the Republicans won do anything about Brenan clearance.
Channel 4 News presenter Cathy Newman says she was sexually harassed at schoolChannel 4 News presenter Cathy Newman has said she was sexually harassed while she was a pupil at an one of Britain’s top private schools. The 44 year old recalled that when she 16, she was sitting in the canteen at Surrey Charterhouse school when a boy unzipped his trousers and forced her to touch him. “We were in the lunch hall and a boy sitting next to me unzipped his flies and grabbed my hand and forced me to touch his penis,” Newman told The Sunday Times, adding that it was years before she talked to anyone about it..

I can understand kids in high school and college having it, using it to keep in touch with their friends so that they can ask for help on homework if they need it or if they miss something there friends can post it on Facebook for everyone that missed the lesson. It was meant for students, to keep up with the assignments that they missed in class and their friends.
While the technology is too cumbersome to be practical, Beers and Hatfield have since refined it to be compact enough to fit within a running shoe, robust enough to stand up to everyday wear and tear, and flexible enough to move with an athlete’s body.”It’s a platform,” Beers said, “something that helps envision a world in which [the] product changes as the athlete changes.”The designers see the HyperAdapt 1.0 (as the “1.0” in its name suggests) as a first step in the field of adaptive performance. While the shoes are currently manual meaning the athlete still controls the modifications the technology opens up new possibilities for how sneakers could function almost seamlessly with a person’s feet, Hatfield said.”Wouldn’t it be great if a shoe, in the future, could sense when you needed to have it tighter or looser?” Hatfield said. “Could it take you even tighter than you’d normally go if it senses you really need extra snugness in a quick maneuver? That’s where we’re headed.
